Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2020

As the airlines return, I wonder what will be different about routes and frequency than pre-COVID. Domestically, I think this primarily is about B6 and DL, both in their competition with each other, but also each of them vs. AA/UA/WN. Clearly both B6 and DL will be flying flewer flights and likely t...

One thing that strikes me is how much the DL/AF/VS/KL JV is building up Boston. The upgauging in LHR, CDG and AMS is pretty impressive. It will be interesting to see if DL adds other destinations, like backfilling for DY in MAD (summer seasonal) or ATH . Interesting times.
